International Oddities / charged me twice
I used to smoke allot of weed in the 80's (Showing my age right there) and I have always enjoyed it. I only ocaisonally am able to find some these days but when I do, I use it for medicinal purposes; I am Bi-Polar and it is known that pot is the best drug for Bi-polar people and there are many studies to have it legalized medcinaly for this purpose. Getting older, I was concerned with buying illegal drugs so I did some research online for legal alternative buds and came across International Oddities. I decided to place an order, which I really couldn't afford because I am on disability, but my current meds leave me feeling like something is missing so I justified spending $90.00 on legal buds at International Oddities.
I placed an online credit card order (Debit Card from SSD) and was told at the last stage that there was something wrong with my card, do not use your browsers back button but use this button below to go back and try again; so, I did, and reentered all my information...same problem at the end, so, like an idiot, I clicked their button and tried again and got the message that my card was declined. So I gave up, screw it. I decided to look at my SSD debit card online statement and holy crap, I got charged $90.00 TWICE for an order that never went through, I got no confirmation number on their site nor an email saying thank you for your order etc.
Come to find out, after doing research online, International Oddities does this ALLOT and screws people out of money. BEWARE PEOPLE! There are NO refunds at all, PERIOD...even if it is their screw up. There is an 800 number on their site so I called it and had to listen to a 10 minute babble of how wonderful their site is, etc. and finally got to choose 3 choices, how to order online, how to order by mail and press 3 for telephone orders...so I pressed #3. I explained my situation to the woman who was actually quite nice despite what I have heard about ### sales people on the phone from this company. She typed something into her computer...for all I know she was typing an email to her mom, and said that she would have them call me to correct the situation. I should have asked who "Them" was but forgot to I guess. So far after 3 days there is no return phone call. There is an email address on their website and I tried that but that is as useless as trying to email the pope.
My SSD debit card statement still shows 2 $90.00 pending cash online payments and the $180 is in cyber limbo and I'll probably never see it again. I did call my debit card company and the only thing they told me was to contact the company and cancel your order...HA, International Oddities could give a CRAP about their customers.
For some reason, like an idiot, I did a ton of research online on International Oddities only after my issue and found that this is common practice for the company because they stand behind their no refund policy...so basically they screw you and tuff crap for you. I personally cannot comment on their product seeing as though I never even got to really place my order, but after my online research I have found that their stuff is crap and you might as well open up a tea bag and smoke that because you'll get the same effect...ZILTCH!
There are reputable companies out there that sell great products like shamansgarden.com where you can buy wild dagga that actually works and costs WAY less, but be careful, MOST of the companies that sell this sort of stuff are fake and sell crap pressed with sugar and water and colored with dye.
So, stay AWAY from International Oddities unless you want to take the chance of getting ripped off of your money with no hopes of getting it back. Sometimes it takes a bite in the butt to learn a lesson!
